About Us

about us

Mitchell & Co is a specialised accounting practice based in Norwood. Our name may be new, but we have years of experience that counts when providing professional advice to clients.

The owner of the business is Stuart Mitchell a Chartered Accountant with over 30 years of public practice experience consulting to businesses mainly in the SME sector and in the last 10 years in particular a real focus and passion to help those in the Export sector.

Stuart is former employee and then partner in the firm of Pannell Kerr Forster (PKF). For a period he acted for Austrade as the Manager of the Finance Assistance Programs for SA/NT. He did so to marry his interest in export matters and finance; it was too good an opportunity to pass up.

For the last 10 years he has operated from Adelaide in partnership with two others trading as Export Solutions a brand he helped develop into the largest Export Grant consultancy practice throughout Australia.

In 2012 the partnership dissolved on an amicable basis and a new name was needed.

As Stuart is an accountant he could not think of anything new to call the firm, so the name Mitchell & Co was created. We were not too happy being called “Co” at first but are now getting used to it.

Mitchell & Co is a team of five staff including Stuart. All have been working in the business for many years and this is another example of experience that counts. Our main focus is the preparation and lodgement of grant applications under the Export Market Development Grants Scheme.

We are the largest firm in our field and assist clients in South Australia and nationally.

We have helped over 500 exporters gain access to over $90M in paid grants since commencement of trading in Adelaide.

Mitchell & Co works on a full success rate for such applications. We only get paid when you do.

We charge a flat commission on the paid grant. We have no other charges unless we advise you in advance.

Mitchell & Co has over 95% success rate with grant applications submitted to Austrade.

We offer other services as well. These are based on advice for other government programs, funding and tax concessions for all businesses, not just exporters.

Such advice is of a general nature. We confirm such instructions in writing and provide a written quote, timetable for delivery, fee and payment arrangements. Mitchell & Co does not prepare taxation returns, compliance or statutory audit work, nor provide investment advice.

We offer a no obligation visit to your business to assess if we can assist your business to benefit from our services. Mitchell & Co refer to other consultants as and when required if we cannot assist. We are focussed and committed to making our experience count for you at all times.
